2014 CONFERENCE - A ROARING SUCCESS!
The 2014 Bioenergy Australia Conference was held at the Stamford Grand in Adelaide on 1- 2 December with a Technical Tour of local bioenergy facilities on 3 December.
Almost 200 delegates were in attendance.
Bioenergy Australia would like to thank all the speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates for their support for this year's event.
Speakers and delegates at the event confirmed the largely untapped potential of bioenergy in Australia and the opportunities that go beyond energy into bio materials and bio chemicals. Bioenergy is already delivering effective and economic waste management and environmental solutions.
Delegates agreed there was a key need for a definitive policy direction to deliver on the potential that bioenergy promises and stability that encourages investment.
We look forward to welcoming you next year to Bioenergy Australia 2015!

Pacific Pyrolysis carbon negative energy technology
Dr Adriana Downie from Pacific Pyrolysis talks about a slow pyrolysis technology that produces both energy and biochar. The technology not only produces bioenergy, it also produces a biochar that can be used as a soil amendment. This interview was filmed at the 2011 Bioenergy Australia Conference, and is based on a presentation given at that conference.
The Bioenergy Australia website bioenergyaustralia.org/ provides authoritative information on bioenergy, including interviews with experts on many aspects of biomass and bioenergy.
